Upcoming information

We continue working with the agriculture sector on the Sustainable Canadian Agriculture Strategy. A What We Heard Report will be made available later this Spring.


The Sustainable Canadian Agricultural Partnership (Sustainable CAP), formerly referred to as the Next Policy Framework, is a five-year (2023–2028) investment by federal, provincial and territorial (FPT) governments to strengthen and grow Canada's agriculture and agri-food sector. It will replace the Canadian Agricultural Partnership (CAP), which ends March 31, 2023.

FPT governments have and will continue to consult with Canadians, including stakeholders such as producers, processors, Indigenous communities, women in agriculture, youth, environmental organizations, and small and emerging sectors to develop the successor Partnership.

Initial consultations on the Sustainable CAP sought stakeholder feedback on both current and potential challenges and opportunities facing the sector and on prospective priorities and vision for the Partnership.

Ongoing consultations on the Sustainable CAP have been focused on seeking stakeholder input on how to realize the priorities articulated in the Guelph Statement, and their desired outcomes, and recommendations to inform the policies and programs to be implemented under the Sustainable CAP.
